On Jan. 29, more than 250 Fordham student-athletes attended the Student-Athlete Career Mentoring Night in the McGinley Center Ballroom, sponsored by the Athletic Department, with help from the Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) and the Office of Development and University Relations. Those in attendance received guidance and support from six Fordham graduates who have gone on to find success in their chosen fields.

Sharing their insights were David Almeida, GSB ’73, Jim Houlihan, GSB ’74, Pat Keenan, GSB ’75, Charlie Menges, FCRH ’64, Mike Puglisi, GSB ’72, and John Zizzo, FCRH ’69. Four of the six could relate easily to the student-athletes in attendance, as they too were student-athletes in their days at Fordham: Keenan and Zizzo played on the football team; Menges played on the men’s basketball squad; and Houlihan played on the baseball team.
